Odd Characters Are Widespread

Written for:  April 2022 PAD Challenge - Day 17

"Write a mad poem."


Down here, my dear girl, it is said
odd characters are widespread.
Cheshire cat can vanish
Hatter's teas are clannish
while Red Queen often screams, 'off with her head'.

Caterpillar is always stoned.
Dormouse drinks and it is condoned.
The walrus tricks oysters,
White Rabbit's watch falters
So you see, dear, here we are all twilight-zoned.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
